Thaddeus Holownia
Canadian, b. 1949
Follow

British-born photographer Thaddeus Holownia predominantly works with large-format cameras, producing black-and-white and color images of the natural world—meditations on time, atmospheric changes, and human intrusions into the environment. For his series “24 Tree Studies for Henry David Thoreau”, Holownia visited Walden Pond in all seasons over the course of two years—echoing Thoreau’s time spent in the area—and produced an intimate portrait of the forest through studies of trees. For Anatomy Lesson—Moose (2006), Holownia constructed a wall of individual bones and bone fragments from a moose skeleton he found while walking in the Newfoundland wilderness. The artist’s careful organization and study of the creature’s anatomy constitutes a sort of memorial to its prior existence. His photographic series of an artificial pond near his home in “New Brunswick, Jolicure Pond”, 1994-2004, documents the interaction between unnatural and natural elements of a landscape
